First Frost - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

First Frost Easy Mini Album made from cards - Susan Wong for Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team 2018


Welcome to the final Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog hop for 2018! My time as Artisan is up and - WOW - what an amazing year it has been. I'm so immensely proud of these gals and so deeply thankful for the friendships that I've gained in this group of diverse and talented artists. Thank you for joining us on the ride! We do it all for you!

In early November I hopped across the ditch to the Melbourne Onstage event for some time with my Aussie pals. (If you don't know, that's a bi-annual Stampin' Up! demonstrator par-ty!) Here's a little mini album I made to remember our weekend together...

I loved how each lunch pack on the day had a personal note from a staff member. If you're ever reading this - thanks John - you brought a smile to my face!

  7. Using the foil edged cards to make a mini album is absolute BRILLIANCE! I can't get over how cool the ribbon wrap with the tassel is -- it's a clever and artistic touch. You have been a true source of happiness to me. I can't extend my thanks enough for all you have done and do! I am so full of honor to know you and call you my friend..
